    Last day for Brentwood location is 6/29/14. It's always been a reliable meat-and-potatoes kind of place, so I guess the Santa Monica branch is where to go now.

    I'm so sad that Daily Grill - Brentwood is closing! Our family and friends have enjoyed eating here ever since it opened. The menu has something for everyone, and servers graciously accommodate any requests for substitutions, etc. It is a big loss for our neighborhood, and I will miss it tremendously.

    Having been here frequently, I thought this would be a good, quiet place to have a birthday lunch with a friend. I made a reservation and requested a nice booth. When we arrived at noon, but they had saved for us was a booth next to the bathroom. The other choice was next to a back serving area. The service was slow, the food was fine, nothing remarkable. The menu has fewer choices now, and in general I would say the quality is definitely going down. There was nothing about this experience that made me feel loyal to Daily Grill. There were lots of managers walking around, but the service was not attentive.

    We go to this restaurant more often than any and most always have a great experience. This visit seemed off from the start. We had to wait for a table past our reservation time. The restaurant was much busier than any other time we had visited. The niceties/appreciation for us patronizing the establishment just weren't there and no normal manager check-in happened. Our food took a very long time - just over an hour since we had been seated. We ordered before both tables around us, but got our food well after they did. The fillet medallions were strange and didn't have much flavor. The salmon was drenched in butter. Not ordering those again. Unfortunately, nothing seemed to really click this visit.

    My friend and I recently had the sand dabs for lunch and took advantage of the special offer for regular customers, key lime pie and coffee for $2.00. Marcus, our server, couldn't have been more cordial and efficient and made the experience very pleasant. The Daily Grill - Brentwood never disappoints!

    Never challenging, but always reliable, this is our go-to place when we want a tasty meal away from anything fussy or trendy. The food is always first-rate, plus our kids always feel welcome. The staff makes an effort time after time to make us feel appreciated. And then there's the bread -- the best sourdough around@

    It's definitely an older crowd establishment. The food was good, I had the cedar plank salmon which was delicious. The service however was very slow. They were busy when we went on a Friday, but our dirty dishes sat in front of us for quite awhile. I wouldn't rush back there but their menu is extensive which works for those groups of people that have very different tastes.

    We had a WONDERFUL dinner and server at the DG Saturday night, but a party next to us was VERY LOUD--so loud it disturbed every other diner. Apparently, the son of the owner was in the group and management could not get them to quiet down. The restaurant gave us free coffee and desserts as an apology.

    We have been to this restaurant many times since it is in our neighborhood and easy to get to. The service is always very good with an attentive wait staff. This time my meal was not as good as usual. I ordered the fish and chips and the fish was soggy and not crisp. My waiter took it back and said the chef was using a different batter that night and did not cook it properly. To me that is a poor explanation. He did return it and it was somewhat better and a little crispier. The other entree--trout almondine was excellent. We will continue to go there but will be more selective in ordering.

    My wife and I catch up with another couple (old friends) here, periodically. The staff are very friendly, attentive, thoughtful, and do not interrupt your conversations to ask, "how is it tasting?" every ten minutes. Yet they are there when you need them. I know of many other, more expensive restaurants that could learn from these people. Menu choices are fairly standard and sufficiently various. Excellent place for unpretentious comfort food, well prepared and presented at reasonable prices in a comfortable environment (you can actually converse without shouting and cupping your ears to converse). Next best to (good) home cooking.
